From the Publisher
From the author of the best-selling Wicked, a transporting
tale-within-a-tale about the strange world of skibbereen--aka tooth
fairies--and the universal need to believe.
Format: 5 CDs, Unabridged
It's the story of What-the-Dickens, a newly hatched orphan creature
who finds he has an attraction to teeth, a crush on a cat named
McCavity, and a penchant for getting into trouble. One day he
happens upon a feisty girl skibberee who is working as an Agent of
Change--trading coins for teeth--and learns that there is a dutiful
tribe of skibbereen (call them tooth fairies) to which he hopes to
belong. As his tale of discovery unfolds, however, both
What-the-Dickens and Dinah come to see that the world is both
richer and less sure than they ever imagined.
NARRATED by Jason Culp
